Openness, Anti-Gay Attitudes, And Intervention: Predicting The Time To Stop Anti-Gay Aggression, Chantrea Kreus, Amber Turner, Bradley Goodnight, Carolyn Brennan, Kevin Swartout

DISCOVERY: Georgia State Honors College Undergraduate Research Journal

Previous research using self-report measures found that the Big-Five personality trait openness to experience was the strongest predictor of attitudes toward gay men and lesbians. A secondary data analysis was conducted to evaluate the mediation between openness levels and the time to intervene as a bystander to an anti-gay aggressive scenario. Participants (n = 65) were self-identified heterosexual male undergraduate students who witnessed a staged scene of anti-gay aggression. During the experiment, one confederate was verbally aggressive toward another, ostensibly gay, confederate; participants chose whether and when to intervene. Participants then completed a battery of measures, including the Big Five Personality ...

Misusing Freud: Psychoanalysis And The Rise Of Homosexual Conversion Therapy, Jonathan Barrett Jan 2014

Misusing Freud: Psychoanalysis And The Rise Of Homosexual Conversion Therapy, Jonathan Barrett

Psi Sigma Siren

Current ideas of conversion therapy often focus on extremist religious groups that wish to cleanse the world of what they view as an immoral abomination, homosexuality. However, conversion therapy started out as mostly scientific curiosity. Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic research on human sexuality helped set the standards on psychosexual study in the twentieth century. Unfortunately, his views on homosexuality became distorted in the 1950s when psychoanalysts and psychiatrists used his methods of therapy but ignored his conclusions on homosexuality and sexual nature itself. Such distortions led to the destruction of many lives within the homosexual community.

Reparative therapy on homosexuals ...

Dying Metaphors And Deadly Fantasies: Freud, Baldwin And Race As Intimacy, Jean-Paul Rocchi Mar 2009

Dying Metaphors And Deadly Fantasies: Freud, Baldwin And Race As Intimacy, Jean-Paul Rocchi

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This article has for foundation a textual dialogue between Baldwin and Freud. It argues that the imprint left by nineteenth and early twentieth-century racial metaphors on the Freudian construction of gender and sexuality has reproduced the logic of racial differentiation within psychoanalysis. This can be seen, for instance, in the mutual exclusion of identification and desire and the role played by unconscious fantasies. Baldwin's exploration of American white consciousness provides the lens for perceiving this racial undercurrent in Freud's texts, and more particularly in his 1915 sketch of the fantasy. In this text, Freud underlines the double nature ...


On Skin As Borderlands: Using Gloria Anzaldúa’S New Mestiza To Understand Self-Injury Among Latinas, Gabriela Sandoval Jun 2006

On Skin As Borderlands: Using Gloria Anzaldúa’S New Mestiza To Understand Self-Injury Among Latinas, Gabriela Sandoval

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In this article, I develop a sociological perspective of self-injury. I use Gloria Anzaldúa's concepts of Coatlicue States and the New Mestiza Consciousness to expand our understanding of self-injury among Latina youth. I close with an acknowledgement that Gloria Anzaldúa believed in transformation, the transformation of cultures as well as of the self. I believe that by facilitating access to the new mestiza consciousness we can provide Latinas and Chicanas with alternative coping strategies. In this way helping them, as Anzaldúa said, "Transition from sacrificial goat to officiating priestess at the crossroads" (1999:102). The article advances initial thoughts ...


“Why Am I So Fat?” A Study Of The Interrelationship Between Poor Body Image And Social Anxiety, Jessica Haley Jan 2005

“Why Am I So Fat?” A Study Of The Interrelationship Between Poor Body Image And Social Anxiety, Jessica Haley

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In this article I use various sociological theories to understand my experiences with poor body image and social anxiety. Although I do suffer from these, I learn that they are not completely my fault! Much of them have to do with many of the face-to-face interactions which I have been a part of throughout my life. I think that my parents and other family members have had a strong impact on the way that I view myself. Not only that, but society as a whole has affected me as well. If I did not live in such a materialistic, image-obsessed ...


Understanding The Psychological Impact Of Aids: The Other Epidemic, Marshall Forstein Jan 1988

Understanding The Psychological Impact Of Aids: The Other Epidemic, Marshall Forstein

New England Journal of Public Policy

HIV has created two epidemics, one of disease, the other the consequence of the psychological response to that disease. Thus far, behavioral change is the only effective means of interrupting the transmission of HIV. The underlying psychological dimensions of the societal and individual responses to AIDS are discussed, with suggestions for how both rational thinking and irrational fears and anxiety contribute to the development of public policy. Examples are given of how short-term solutions to reduce anxiety may actually create long-term problems, potentially increasing the risk of transmission of HIV. Specific psychological mechanisms that contribute to the epidemic of fear ...


Hiv Antibody Testing: Performance And Counseling Issues, Michael Gross Jan 1988

Hiv Antibody Testing: Performance And Counseling Issues, Michael Gross

New England Journal of Public Policy

This article assesses the performance of currently used tests for exposure to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the infectious agent associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS); suggests, in view of that information, guidelines for counseling people seeking HIV antibody testing; and evaluates the claim that because antibody test results will effect behavior change in those who are infected, all members of high-risk groups should be tested.

HIV testing is likely to yield a high proportion of false-positive results in low-risk populations and infants born to infected mothers. A negative result may not establish freedom from infection in high-risk groups or the ...
